ARS MINERVA presents The Amazons in the Fortunate Isles

Lost in the archives of Venice’s Biblioteca Marciana since its premiere in 1679, this opera bears the name of the women warriors whose legend has been recounted by everyone from Homer to Wonder Woman comic books. Receive a special 20% YCSF discount!

Join us on May 21st or May 22nd at 2 PM PST and rediscover a unique baroque Venetian tragicomedy full of sensuality, jealousy, romance, twists, military catastrophe, and characters with modern-day issues. Exotic beauties equal of any man, and fearsome warriors who battled epic heroes, these were the Amazons....but those who anticipate yet another epic battle should brace for a hefty dose of the unexpected.  

AMAZONS, A MOORISH SAILOR AND A SULTAN.... The opera of Pallavicino takes place in the legendary Fortunates Isles located in the Atlantic Ocean, a winterless earthly paradise inhabited by the heroes of Greek mythology. After their defeat against the Greeks at the battle of Thermodon, the Amazons migrated to the Fortunate Isles, but one day, a moorish corsair shipwrecked on the shore …and everything changed.
